Today I am thankful for encouraging words. I am thankful for people who give encouraging words, and passages in the bible that strengthen me.
At 11:05, the end of the day today, I am exhausted. I had a conversation with someone this week about this passage in Matthew 11:
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
We contemplated how it is possible to find the rest that this passage is talking about during times when you feel overwhelmed, weary, burdened, or emotionally or physically exhausted. How do you actively choose peace? It was a timely conversation for me.
This passage is my encouraging word today. I need to feel that kind of inner rest and peace...for HIS yoke is easy and HIS burden is light. So thankful for that!
